Asus Reveals World’s First Liquid-Cooled Laptop With 4K Display
Asus has revealed the world’s first liquid-cooled laptop with IPS panel that supports 4K resolution. It’s a notebook that is said to be designed for gaming performance on par with high-end PCs.
It aims to achieve that level of performance via its unique cooling solution, and a microprocessor with unlocked multiplier. That’s not all, the ROG GX700 notebook has some impressive OC features.
Inside, it has an Intel quad-core Intel Core i7-6820HK processor, with 2.70GHz/3.60GHz and 8MB cache. On the graphics side of things, you can expect an Nvidia GeForce GTX 990, with 8GB GDDR5 memory.
You can put in a solid state drive or use up to 64GB of DDR4 memory in addition to other high-end components. As I mentioned, it comes with a 4K IPS panel that is 17″ and supports Nvidia’s G-Sync technology.
For liquid cooling, a water-pump is plugged in the back on the notebook, and can be removed when moving the device. The notebook will be available soon and its price will depend on the specs you choose. For high-end specs, it can cost you around $4000.
What puts me off here is the cooling solution limiting the mobility of ROG GX700. Cooling solution should have been built in to the device.
Anyways, do you see value here? Let us know in the comments below.
